Perimeter Clinic Atlanta has been a family-owned practice since 2000, starting when Dr Rikhter and his wife opened their doors in October of that year. As a privately-owned business, the care we provide to our patients is personalized. We also focus on building relationships, and many current patients have been with us from very beginning. As family physicians, we understand the crucial role of preventative care and advocate our patients to take an active role in maintaining their overall health and wellbeing through the wide array of services we provide. We strive to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible in addressing their mental and physical needs.
